The good side of this is the showing of live tv of Rocky defending hid title. The bad side is
it just was one punch that really connected to Joe's jaw. Said it aian't so Joe.

Thanks so much for this. My father was a great fight fan, kept a scrapbook, etc. I remember when I was four or five we got our first TV, an Emerson in a pecan cabinet. But it was fight night when we got it home,and we watched the Gilette show in the living room with the Emerson still partly in the box. We didn't miss much back then. Life was grand. Thanks again.
